South East

The south east marine area includes the inshore marine plan area only; there is no south east offshore marine plan area. The south east inshore marine plan area covers an area of approximately 1,400 kilometres of coastline stretching from Felixstowe to near Dover, taking in over 3,900 square kilometres of sea.

Our first products (Iteration 1)

In Spring 2017 we consulted on our first products of the process that will lead to the development of the south west marine plans. We provided example common marine plan policies and a digital plan format for consideration.  Thank you for your valuable feedback which is helping us develop marine plans.

Our second products (Iteration 2)

We will soon be engaging on our second products of the marine plan development. The marine plan area vision, and options to address remaining issues will be presented for comment on-line and during workshops in Spring 2018. Please subscribe to the Marine Planning Newsletter to receive information on our engagement events here or sign up directly for the Spring 2018 workshops here.

A timeline for marine plan production and an overview of our approach to engagement is in the Statement of Public Participation.

Using the marine plans

Until this marine plan is adopted you should use the Marine Policy Statement. The Marine Policy Statement is the relevant policy document for use when making decisions and developing proposals.


Your local marine planning contact in these plan areas is Tom Pavitt located in the London office.
